NOAH launches manifesto for European elections
The AnimalhealthEurope Manifesto 2019 sets out six ways the EU can lead the way in protecting animal health.

Association aims to be at the forefront of animal welfare

The National Office for Animal Health (NOAH) has set out its vision for animal health, welfare and sustainability in its manifesto for the upcoming European elections.

The AnimalhealthEurope Manifesto 2019 sets out six ways the EU can lead the way in protecting animal health. This includes the ‘timely and science-based implementation of the new veterinary medicines’ and supporting the ‘European Medicines Agency in determining what range of medicines should be available'.

NOAH chief executive Dawn Howard said: “NOAH is a member of AnimalHealthEurope and will remain so after the Brexit discussions are finalised – with Europe being the second largest animal medicines market in the world.

"We have high hopes and big ideas to contribute towards its future. NOAH’s vision is to be at the forefront of UK animal health and welfare.”

The Manifesto states that a safe and sustainable food supply chain is essential for feeding the growing UK population. ‘The animal health industry delivers the therapies and disease prevention tools to make this a reality,’ it notes.

Dawn said: “By protecting the health and welfare of animals we can improve the quality of life for both animals and people, whilst contributing to safe, affordable and sustainable food production.

“We safeguard public health by preventing disease outbreaks in animals and help prepare for emerging diseases, as well as those which are transferable from animals to people.”
